I Thought Everybody Knew


On Tuesday, November 7, the winning daily numbers for the Pennsylvania Lottery were 666. I'm not a big "prophecy buff", but I found it ironic that day in particular was Election Day in America. I'm not trying to make any connection here--I'm not saying that the Pennsylvania Lottery's daily number on Tuesday is a prophetic sign related to the election. I'm just providing this information as background for an interesting conversation that occured at work the next day.

The day after the election, I came across the PA Lottery site. I printed a screenshot of the winning number and showed it to several co-workers (three of whom identify themselves as "Christian"). The last person I showed the the screenshot doesn't claim to be a Christian, but she does identify herself as a "good person." She looked at the printout, then said: "Okay. I guess I don't get it. What's the significance of the number '666'?" Here's the point/question of my post: How does someone live in the United States for 50+ years (not to mention living in what is sometimes referred to as the "buckle of the Bible belt") and NOT KNOW that there is something about the number 666?

There are certain things I assume (maybe naively) most everyone knows, especially in Amerca. I assume most people know:

  • "Red" means STOP; "Green" means GO.
  • Littering is wrong; so is butting in line.
  • You should pull over when an emergency vehicle approaches.
  • Captain Kangaroo really wasn't a Captain. (OK. That's a obvious one one, but you'd be surprised...)
  • The number 666 has something to do with the Bible and the end of the world (simply stated)

Maybe we haven't done as good a job as we thought in getting the "Word" out.

Interesting. Most people I have met have some idea of what 666 means. But then again, many (most?) people are blinded by Satan...

Just curious: I noticed you like Sowell. Have you read his book, "Conflict of Visions"? Very good read...

Brian: No I haven't read that one. I'm really behind on my "non-Sunday School related" reading. I need to pick up a copy of Black Rednecks and White Liberals. I noticed the other day that it's out in paperback.

Hello Keith and all,

First, here's a link to an earlier article i wrote about 666.

Now here's some related and relevant information behind recents events leading up to this election and other situations.

Eleven Roars Loudly

Here's some eye opening background information behind many recent watershed events (Macaca, Foley, Ted Haggart, David Kuo, the US election, Hurricane Katrina, etc., etc.) that will prove very enlightening on many levels. Many of the events and situations of recent years were not mere coincidences and I have meticulously produced stunning and comprehensive proof of this, and much else. Resist the urge to dismiss the things I discuss before you review the evidence; be patient and strive to understand what I am presenting. Ask yourself; how many unlikely coincidences are necessary before you recognize a pattern in the noise? Remember, "scoffing in the face of profundity causes blindness..."

I want you all to pay very close attention to the fact that my birthday was August 11th, the day of Mr. Allen's "Macaca" gaffe. His defeat during month 11, along with many of his ilk, was an apt belated birthday present for me. Also notice that my last name is Page, matching the so-called "page" scandal associated with Mr. Foley. Furthermore, I have been writing and exposing religious deception and hypocrisy and Ted Haggart's downfall and David Kuo's book, along with a string of other events, served to prove my earlier assertions in stunning fashion. Inspect my photo in my Free Ebook... to see the hat I'm wearing and you'll better appreciate the full scope and import of these recent events. It is from the Troopers (11) Drum and Bugle Corp. of Casper Wyoming, who marched during the Bush-Cheney 2001 inauguration parade. Pay special attention to how the number 11 marks key events during the Bush-Cheney administration. For example, notice that Dick Cheney's hunting accident occurred on February 11th, which was the 6-month mark between August 11, 2005 and 2006 and he is from Casper, Wyoming. Likewise, notice that Hurricane Katrina was named storm number 11, came ashore on August 29, and 2+9=11. This is merely the tip of the iceberg, so be prepared to be shocked and amazed.
